The EMANZ conference returns to Wellington in April with a fresh format derived from feedback and some innovative thinking from our conference committee. The conference is being held at the InterContinental Hotel, Grey Street, Wellington CBD.

Kicking things off will be a pre-conference workshop 17-18 April designed to get input and ideas about the future direction of the energy services sector, and agree specific initiatives and actions that EMANZ and its members will deliver over the following two years. It is a unique opportunity for participants to have their say and actively participate in the determining the future of our sector.
The conference presentations then move into gear with international and local speakers who have succeeded in putting their energy management plans into action. Plus this time we have inspirational speakers from outside the energy sector talking about how they successfully built their businesses.
The Workshop and Conference, including all social finctions and dinner, will be held on level 1 of the InterContinental Hotel, Grey Street, Wellingtion CBD.

Appreciative Inquiry Workshop (10am 17 April - 10am 18 April)

The Appreciative Inquiry pre-conference workshop will run 10am - 5pm 17 April and 7.30am - 10am 18 April before the conference. This workshop gives all participants a voice in determining the future of New Zealand’s energy management industry.  
The objective of this workshop is not only to get input and ideas from everyone about the future direction of the industry, but to also agree specific initiatives and actions that EMANZ and the industry will deliver over the coming years.
